Forest garden

Kenza designing our Forest gardenIn 2014 we made the design for a forest garden with the help of Kenza, who studied landscape design in France.
Kenza measured and mapped the area, measured the Ph of the soil, sketched the sunny & shady spots and made a good map with all the useful trees & plants that were already there. Together we set up a wish list and with that we made a final forest garden design.
Kenza also wrote a detailed plant list and a calender with all the useful information like when to plant, prune & harvest.

The "only thing" we needed to do, was implement it! :-) But by the time Kenza was done, sowing and planting season was already over. That had to wait.

What we did do, was marking the paths and mulch them with wood chips. We also made a nice grass circle for:

Camping in our forest garden
At the moment there is one spot for a small tent; In the future there will be many camping spots in the forest garden where guests can put up their tent. We sowed one round spot for a small tent with grass, and around it we sowed and planted wild strawberries, herbs, edible berries and smaller trees so the guests can pick their own breakfast. (There are no cars allowed in this forest garden campsite!)
